Turkey seems to have a problem with Google and its services. The country has issued multiple bans of YouTube, which has resulted in plenty of criticism from the tech press in the country. Also banned was Google's Blogger service, because a Turkish TV service was upset that some Blogger users posted links to unauthorized streams of Turkish football matches. Now, Slashdot points us to the news that Turkey has apparently banned a whole bunch of Google IP addresses with no explanation. Among the services banned: translate.google.com, books.google.com, tools.google.com, docs.google.com, AppEngine, Feedburner and Google Analytics. Given how many other sites rely on things like Google Analytics and Feedburner, you have to wonder if folks in Turkey are having a lot of trouble reaching many sites these days.
